autoDOORSschedule

Win32 and 64, English

Antonia Petrova
One-click insertion of a Doors Schedule containing user-defined door properties. Multifunctional automatically labeled dynamic door blocks - only two blocks cover all door types and sizes.

General Usage Instructions

Click the DOORin icon to open ADS.dwg in AutoCAD® Design Center. Insert _single_door_ads, _double_door_ads and/or _single_light_door_ads and _double_light_door_ads  (use arch_... If you prefer working in Architectural Units Mode instead, you can import the DoorSchedule table style from the same file or use your own table style). Enter values for height, material and clearance for each block and set the frame thickness from the Properties bar for _single_door_ads and _double_door_ads. Freely copy, move and rotate block items and change their properties as necessary. Turning the opening angle inwards will make a door to be taken as swinging.  ADS blocks have also got grips for moving the door label and rotating its text. There's a wipeout (in the "door_wipeout" layer; WIPEOUT>F>OFF hides the wipeout outlines) in each block that masks the part of the wall where the door is mounted, so it's not necessary to break the wall for the block. If you prefer to work in the usual way after all, freeze the "door_wipeout" layer and use the DOORfix and DOORfixall commands to break the walls between the jambs of selected doors.

Click the DOORS icon to open the ADS dialog. Check the properties to be listed in the Door Schedule. Point what ID manipulation you want to be applied. If your choice is give equal doors equal IDs or give each door an unique ID, you'd better apply this manipulation on the entire drawing (next radio column; check entire drawing, then pick the ID MANIPULATION ONLY button) or select all ADS blocks, then if you want a Door Schedule for a selection only, open the ADS dialog again (your settings will be saved), and make a Door Schedule for a selection with the do not change door IDs radio button checked. The door IDs will be manipulated accordingly to the door properties chosen. For example, if two doors differ by their opening angles only and the OPENING ANGLE box is not checked in the ADS dialog, they will get equal IDs if give equal doors equal IDs is selected.

Commands

Ribbon/Toolbar Icon Command Command Description

DOORin

Opens the ADS blocks from AutoDoorsSchedule.dwg in AutoCAD Design Center

DOORS

Opens the ADS dialog

DOORfixall

Breaks the walls between the jambs of selected doors. Slower but more precise than DOORfix

DOORfix

Breaks the walls between the jambs of selected doors. It may fail to break more complex objects like hatches, etc. (it's possible that DOORfixall works with any of these kinds of objects). Breaks only objects in visible and unlocked layers. The current layer should be visible and unlocked too.

Installation/Uninstallation

The installer that ran when you downloaded this plug-in from Autodesk App Store has already installed the plug-in. You may need to restart the Autodesk product to activate the plug-in. To uninstall this plug-in, click Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features (Windows 7/8/8.1/10) or Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs (Windows XP), and uninstall as you would any other application from your system.

Additional Information

Known Issues

Mirroring a block item will cause its labels to disorder but it will still be listed properly in the Door Schedule. Mind that if you scale a block item that will scale its frame thickness as well as its door width and wall thickness, but the door height and clearance will stay unchanged.
